Invocation

Scripture: Exodus 1:8-2:10


8 Now a new king arose over Egypt, who did not know Joseph.

9 He said to his people, "Look, the Israelite people are more numerous and more powerful than we.

10 Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, or they will increase and, in the event of war, join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land."

11 Therefore they set taskmasters over them to oppress them with forced labor. They built supply cities, Pithom and Rameses, for Pharaoh.

12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread, so that the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites.

13 The Egyptians became ruthless in imposing tasks on the Israelites,

14 and made their lives bitter with hard service in mortar and brick and in every kind of field labor. They were ruthless in all the tasks that they imposed on them.

15 The king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah,

16 "When you act as midwives to the Hebrew women, and see them on the birthstool, if it is a boy, kill him; but if it is a girl, she shall live."

17 But the midwives feared God; they did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but they let the boys live.

18 So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and said to them, "Why have you done this, and allowed the boys to live?"

19 The midwives said to Pharaoh, "Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife comes to them."

20 So God dealt well with the midwives; and the people multiplied and became very strong.

21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families.

22 Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, "Every boy that is born to the Hebrews you shall throw into the Nile, but you shall let every girl live."


Exodus 2:1-10

1 Now a man from the house of Levi went and married a Levite woman.

2 The woman conceived and bore a son; and when she saw that he was a fine baby, she hid him three months.

3 When she could hide him no longer she got a papyrus basket for him, and plastered it with bitumen and pitch; she put the child in it and placed it among the reeds on the bank of the river.

4 His sister stood at a distance, to see what would happen to him.

5 The daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, while her attendants walked beside the river. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her maid to bring it.

6 When she opened it, she saw the child. He was crying, and she took pity on him. "This must be one of the Hebrews' children," she said.

7 Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, "Shall I go and get you a nurse from the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?"

8 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Yes." So the girl went and called the child's mother.

9 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Take this child and nurse it for me, and I will give you your wages." So the woman took the child and nursed it.

10 When the child grew up, she brought him to Pharaoh's daughter, and she took him as her son. She named him Moses, "because," she said, "I drew him out of the water."


“We Bring the Sacrifice of Praise”

Hymn #41


We bring the sacrifice of praise​

into the house of the Lord;​

We bring the sacrifice of praise​

into the house of the Lord.​

And we offer up to You​

the sacrifices of thanksgiving;​

And we offer up to You​

the sacrifices of joy.​


“How Firm a Foundation”

Hymn #689


How firm a foundation,​

ye saints of the Lord,​

Is laid for your faith​

in His excellent Word!​

What more can He say​

than to you He hath said,​

To you who for refuge​

to Jesus have fled?​


“Fear not; I am with thee.​

O be not dismayed,​

For I am thy God,​

I will still give thee aid.​

I’ll strengthen thee, help thee,​

and cause thee to stand,​

Upheld by My gracious,​

omnipotent hand.”​


“When thro’ the deep waters​

I call thee to go,​

The rivers of sorrow​

shall not overflow;​

For I will be with thee​

thy trials to bless,​

And sanctify to thee​

Thy deepest distress.”​


“When thro’ fi’ry trials​

thy pathway shall lie,​

My grace, all sufficient,​

shall be thy supply.​

The flames shall not hurt thee;​

I only design​

Thy dross to consume​

and thy gold to refine.”​

“E’en down to old age​

all My people shall prove​

My sov’reign, eternal,​

unchangeable love;​

And when silver hair​

shall their temples adorn,​

Like lambs they shall still​

in My bosom be borne.”​


“The soul that on Jesus​

hath leaned for repose​

I will not, I will not​

desert to his foes;​

That soul, tho’ all hell​

should endeavor to shake,​

I’ll never, no never,​

no never forsake.”​


“The Churches One Foundation”

Hymn #668


The Church’s one foundation​

Is Jesus Christ, her Lord.​

She is His creation​

By water and the Word.​

From heav’n He came​

and sought her To be​

His holy bride;​

With His own blood He bought her,​

And for her life He died.​


Elect from ev’ry nation,​

Yet one o’er all the earth;​

Her charter of salvation:​

One Lord, one faith, one birth.​

One holy name she blesses;​

Partakes one holy food;​

And to one hope she presses,​

With ev’ry grace endued.​


‘Mid toil and tribulation,​

And tumult of her war,​

She waits the consummation​

Of peace forevermore;​

Till, wit the vision glorious,​

Her longing eyes are blest,​

And the great Church victorious​

Shall be the Church at rest.​


Yet she on earth hath union​

With God, the Three in One,​

And mystic, sweet communion​

With those whose rest is won.​

O happy ones and holy!​

Lord, give us grace that we,​

Like them, the meek and lowly,​

On high may dwell with Thee.​


Scripture: Psalm 138


1 I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise;

2 I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness; for you have exalted your name and your word above everything.

3 On the day I called, you answered me, you increased my strength of soul.

4 All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord, for they have heard the words of your mouth.

5 They shall sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord.

6 For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly; but the haughty he perceives from far away.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve me against the wrath of my enemies; you stretch out your hand, and your right hand delivers me.

8 The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Matthew 16:13-20


13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?"

14 And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."

15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"

16 Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God."

17 And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven.

18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.

19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

20 Then he sternly ordered the disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.

Scripture: Romans 12:1-8


1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.

4 For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function,

5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.

6 We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith;

7 ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching;

8 the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness.


Message: Pastor Ryan “How’s your worship?”
